Nestled in the natural beauty of the Ouachita Mountains on 1,940-acre Lake Catherine, one of the five popular Diamond Lakes in the Hot Springs area, Lake Catherine State Park features CCC/Rustic Style facilities constructed of native stone and wood by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. Situated along the lakeshore are the park's 18 cabins that feature fully-equipped kitchens. Most have wood-burning fireplaces. The park's fully-accessible cabin, the Polly Crews Cabin, was designed in detail to serve the needs of visitors with disabilities. The cabin also includes its own private and fully-accessible fishing pier and boat dock. The 1,160-square-foot cabin is a design inspired by the rustic architectural designs of five other cabins in the park. An accessible parking space and path provide barrier-free access to the cabin. The two-bedroom cabin includes a bathroom offering both a spa tub and a roll-in shower. Just outside the cabin's screened porch overlooking the lake is a large flagstone patio with a picnic table and pedestal grill.

Lots of small water falls along the trail, and in a nice part of the woods. Probably my favorite trail in town.

Scenic and well marked. Short hike with many interesting views , bridges , a waterfall , etc

Was a really great hike and had some pretty view spots and interesting bridges. It was a little populated with other hikers but everyone was very friendly.

easy trail with a few snags

Nice fun easy hike.

Great for us and 2 dogs. Not too crowded on a late September Sunday. We loved the waterfall and vistas!

This trail and the waterfall were beautiful! However, it is a moderate-level trail. In fact, all of the trails in this area are moderate-level according to the visitor center. Taking a 4 year old and two dogs was quite difficult...but I'll definitely return because I absolutely loved it, just not with so many responsibilities

Beautiful after a solid two weeks of rain. This may be our favorite trail in Central Arkansas.

Good place to have a family hike, trail running, or start building your endurance back up. My wife and I have been on alot of trails in Arkansas, but we keep coming back to this one.

Great easy trail but as of today the falls were dried up.
